WHO WE ARE

Hi! We are Elisabetta and Savio, the founders of Unexpected London. If you are wondering how on earth we came up with this unexpected concept the answer is essentially one. We can’t stand pre-packed holidays, commercial and crowded tours and big groups of tourists following a tour guide with a red umbrella or a flag. Travelling for us is not something that can be standardised, it is a unique and personal experience that should be crafted and tailored around everyone’s passions and interests.

We have therefore created an alternative way to explore London for curious and dynamic travellers who are looking for more personalised, intimate and local experiences, where they can feel a part and not just spectators of London’s most authentic and unique areas. We are not your usual tour guide but more like a knowledgeable friend showing you London’s best kept secrets and neighbourhoods and helping you plan your stay with bespoke itineraries and tips.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

Unexpected London is a brand new concept of cultural wellbeing, which supports and promotes responsible tourism.

Responsible Tourism

With our experiences we foster a positive interaction between our guests and the places we visit. We want visitors to feel part and not spectators of the places we see, live and embrace what London is, from its beautiful nature to its varied and rich international communities. We manage to do so thanks to:

- Small groups of maximum 6 people

- Engaging and interactive explanations

- Explore off-the-beaten paths and itineraries, avoiding peak times and the most crowded and commercial areas.

Cultural

Wellbeing

We are the pioneers of a new way to travel that combines culture and wellbeing and shows how responsible and green tourism, combined with dynamic walking and culture, can truly benefit not just our mind but also our general wellbeing, and we do so through:

- A dynamic walk technique

- Contact with nature and wildlife

- Music and its relaxing and energising effects on mind and body.
